Dependent Tuition Remission Requirements

Coral Gables (February 27, 2012) — If you have a dependent who plans to utilize 100 percent undergraduate tuition remission benefits for the 2012-2013 academic year, please be aware of the following requirements. In order to qualify, your full-time undergraduate dependent is required to apply for the William L. Boyd, IV, Florida Resident Access Grant (BFRAG). In addition, to be eligible to receive funding from the BFRAG, a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) must be completed each academic year.

All dependents who qualify for the BFRAG will have the amount of the BFRAG subtracted from their charges for tuition and fees, and tuition remission will cover the remaining entitled costs. If a dependent qualifies for the BFRAG but does not apply as required, tuition remission will be reduced by the amount of the BFRAG award.

This BFRAG policy affects only dependents who are full-time undergraduate students eligible for 100 percent tuition remission. This BFRAG policy does not affect dependents receiving less than 100 percent undergraduate tuition remission.
